    I've heard about Disney's Magical Message but can't find it available anywhere. We are coming to WDW on December 14th and would like to surprise the boys with a message or some tips on how to surprise them of their big Christmas gift this year.

    Hi Anuja,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What a wonderfully fun Christmas surprise for your boys! The Christmas season is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. There truly is "Joy through the World" with all the beautiful holiday decorations, special events, and entertainment.

    Disney Magical Messaging was a service offered through DisneyStore.com, now called shopDisney. Unfortunately, in checking with the team at shopDisney, I learned that the service is no longer offered. I think that could have been a fun way to share the news with your boys that they have a special surprise. I do have a few ideas to suggest, and maybe one of them might work well for you.

    If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you'll receive complimentary MagicBands. You can personalize the MagicBands, wrap them separately when you receive them at home, and let the boys open an early Christmas present. Another idea could be to print out one of the theme park maps such as the Magic Kingdom Park map and let the boys open a card with the map enclosed. Another idea could be to sign up for the Free Vacation Planning Videos and arrange a "movie night" where you all sit down to watch a favorite movie, but have the Walt Disney World videos play instead.

    Anuja, you're sure to have lots of fun with all the magic awaiting you at Walt Disney World.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
